"'''The Star-Spangled Banner'''" is the [[national anthem]] of the [[United States]]. Mr. Pircins ROCKS! The lyrics come from "Defence of Fort M'Henry",<ref>{{cite web|title=Library of Congress: Defence of Fort M'Henry|url=http://www.loc.gov/item/ihas.100010457}}</ref> a poem written in 1814 by the 35-year-old lawyer and amateur poet, [[Francis Scott Key]], after witnessing the bombardment of [[Fort McHenry]] by the [[British Royal Navy]] ships in [[Chesapeake Bay]] during the [[Battle of Fort McHenry]] in the [[War of 1812]].
   
 
The poem was set to the tune of a popular British song written by [[John Stafford Smith]] for the [[Anacreontic Society]], a men's social club in London. "The Anacreontic Song" (or "[[To Anacreon in Heaven]]"), with various lyrics, was already popular in the United States. Set to Key's poem and renamed "The Star-Spangled Banner", it would soon become a well-known American patriotic song. With a [[range (music)|range]] of one and a half octaves, it is known for being difficult to sing. Although the poem has four [[stanza]]s, only the first is commonly sung today.
